On May 1, students from Oakland's Skyline High School presented their design proposals for ecological enhancements at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland. This spring, CCA faculty member Margaret Ikeda has been leading a collaborative pilot project in collaboration with Oakland Unified School District and Y-PLAN at the UC Berkeley Center for Cities and Schools, and with financial support from the Port of Oakland's Community Investment program. The project consists of a "plug-in" curriculum module in which 85 high school students participate in ecological design exercises that build upon the Buoyant Ecologies research at CCA's Architecture Division. This work is taking place at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, a recreational area developed by the Port of Oakland as a public resource dedicated to environmental research and education. The students presented their final projects to an audience of legislators and community representatives.
